London Road documents the events of 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women.
Adam Cork’s music uses the melodic speech patterns captured on Alecky Blythe’s recorded interviews with the people of Ipswich to create this extraordinary work.
BEST MUSICAL – Critics’ Circle Award 2011
‘Captivating… A startling, magically original success.’ Evening Standard
‘Genuinely groundbreaking. Something very new for the musical form; raw humanity captured in music.’ Time Out
‘A quietly stunning achievement… The creative daring and needling intelligence of London Road returns the complex texture of human life to musical theatre.’ Sunday Times
Following a sell-out run in the Cottesloe last year, the award-winning production returns, this time to the Olivier Theatre.
